Computer Skills

We maintain a computer lab offering PC tools to enhance members’ marketable skills. There is a set schedule for typing offered twice a day. During open practice time, members are encouraged to practice the skills they are learning during the structured topics. Additionally, there is opportunity during the week to make up a missed lesson.

 

Instruction on the use of computers is offered on the following: Windows XP and Windows 7, Word, Excel, and Internet. This is done through a combination of instructor-lead training and interactive videos. The classes focus on basic and intermediate skills and are three (3) months in duration. PowerPoint has been added to the curriculum and individuals have the opportunity to practice data entry. Attendance in basic typing or any of the other courses is based on member interest, skills, and Counselor referrals.

 

Preparing mailings and other contracted office tasks are done on an as needed basis.

 

A member who expresses interest in community employment and demonstrates readiness can be referred by his/her Counselor to Employment Services.
